You have now taken several simple but very important steps to protect your information. Review your list of information assets and work through what else you need to do to improve your own security.

Based on the risk analysis you have done for your information assets, create an information security action plan detailing the countermeasures you could implement to protect each asset.

Before proceeding, you should implement at least one set of countermeasures. In time, you should implement all the countermeasures and also periodically review your risk analysis and action plan to make sure that you are maintaining your countermeasures.

Next you’ll learn about some of the recent developments in cyber security.
